The Rutherford Public Library Annual Gala


The Rutherford Public Library Foundation held its fourth annual Gala at Il Villaggio on Saturday, May 7, 2016. Underwritten by BCB Rutherford, 200 people joined the Foundation in honoring Sheila McPherson. Ms. McPherson is known well for her support of and involvement in many local community organizations, such as the Library, the Woman’s Club, the Polymathic Club, and St. Mary Parish. Guests at the event enjoyed an extended cocktail hour with hot and cold hors d’ouevres, followed by a three-course meal with intermezzo in the main dining room. Among the dignitaries were Rutherford Council Members Frank Nunziato, Mark O’Connor, Sean Walker, Stephanie McGowan, Carolyn Smith and Freeholder Steven Tanelli. The Foundation wholeheartedly thanks all who attended in support of the Library. For more photos, please click here.
